SYDNEY – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of a global marketing partnership with MINI to collaborate on a series of marketing initiatives and content creation for the new KeyMission series of action cameras and the recently announced new MINI Countryman.

Through a collection of real-life experiences documented on the KeyMission 360 and enabled by the new MINI Countryman, the partnership aims to inspire and encourage the spirit of exploration and sharing of these experiences in complete 360˚ immersive detail.

Embodying the spirit of adventure and of experiencing life to the fullest, both Nikon KeyMission action cameras and MINI Countryman share the passion for storytelling.

The KeyMission 360, capable of capturing seamless 360˚ videos in every direction, has redefined the hands-free video market beyond momentary thrills to exploring meaningful adventures. In the journey to collect experiences, the MINI Countryman is an enabler of new stories, driving outside the ordinary, with the KeyMission 360 the perfect companion for documenting them in seamless 360˚ videos with 4K UHD quality.

Content filmed using the Nikon KeyMission 360 will be utilised by MINI across various on and offline channels throughout the course of its “ADD STORIES” campaign, which calls on viewers to go out and try new things. Every mile travelled on new roads provides new impressions and stories for sharing with friends and family.

“Unique and authentic experiences – off the beaten track – become more and more relevant to people,” explains Marc Lengning, Head of MINI Brand Management. “The new MINI Countryman will take them almost anywhere to create such experiences and Nikon’s KeyMission 360 is the perfect partner to capture them.”

“Nikon has a heritage of innovation and delivering unique experiences. With MINI, we have found the perfect partner as we share many values like authenticity and excitement for going out and experiencing the world,” says Birgitta Olson, General Manager, Global Marketing & Research Strategy Division, Imaging Business Unit.  “We are very excited about the partnership and in the true spirit of exploration and collecting experiences, we will work closely to uncover real stories and share them in immersive detail.”
